Microdermabrasion vs. Chemical Peels: Which is Right for You?

Microdermabrasion vs. Chemical Peels Which is Right for You

Are you sick of feeling wrong about the way your skin looks? Do you want to change how your skin feels, looks, and acts? You’re lucky because many effective treatments can help you get the skin you’ve always wanted. 

Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are two popular ways to make your skin look younger. But which one should you choose? Let’s look at these treatments more closely and compare them so you can make a good choice.

How Microdermabrasion Works

Microdermabrasion works with a particular machine to remove the top layer of dead skin cells on the face. It is a quick treatment that doesn’t hurt and usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes. It is excellent for people who want a treatment with no downtime that they can do during their lunch break. It’s also suitable for people with sensitive skin because it’s a gentle way to get rid of dead skin.

So, what good things does microdermabrasion do? Well, it can help make fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage look better. It can also help boost collagen production, making your skin smoother and even-toned. After a microdermabrasion treatment, your skin will feel smoother, softer, and more beautiful.

Microdermabrasion Treatment

Commonly, micro-diamond crystals are used in this non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. This treatment can make sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scars, melasma, and other skin problems and conditions look better.

Here at Kendall Esthetics, we are proud that our microdermabrasion treatments are the best in the area. Our licensed and experienced aestheticians are committed to giving each patient personalized, high-quality care.

Our aestheticians know how to use the microdermabrasion machine safely and effectively for each patient. We may also suggest changing the treatment to fit the needs of each patient, whether they want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or sun damage.

After the treatment, we give our patients detailed instructions on keeping their results and their skin from getting worse. We also offer follow-up appointments to check on how our patients are doing and make changes to their treatment plans if necessary.

At Kendall Esthetics, we are dedicated to giving our clients the best care possible and getting the best results possible. Contact us right away to set up a meeting and find out how microdermabrasion can change your skin.

What About Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are a stronger treatment that uses a chemical solution to remove dead skin cells from the skin. Depending on your skin type and how bad your skin problems are, they can be done differently. Chemical peels can help with many skin problems, such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.

Chemical peels are less gentle than microdermabrasion and require some recovery time. Depending on how strong the peel was, your skin may be red, flaky, and peel for a few days after the treatment. But the results are usually more noticeable than with microdermabrasion.

So, Which One is Best?

It depends on what you want and what your skin needs. Microdermabrasion might be a better choice for you if you have sensitive skin or don’t want to have any downtime. But if you want more dramatic results and don’t mind a little downtime, try a chemical peel.

Also, knowing which treatment can fit your skin’s needs is essential. Your aesthetician or dermatologist will look at your skin and give you advice on the best way to treat it. They might even say that microdermabrasion and chemical peels should be used together for the best results.

Treatment Cost

Regarding price, both treatments are less expensive than surgery or laser treatments, which are more invasive. The cost will depend on where you get the treatment, how experienced the aesthetician or dermatologist is, and what kind of treatment you get.

Both treatments also need proper care after they’re done. To protect your skin after a microdermabrasion treatment, use sunscreen and stay out of the sun. You shouldn’t pick at any peeling or flaking skin after a chemical peel, and stay out of the sun. 

Your aesthetician or dermatologist will give you detailed instructions on caring for yourself after the procedure to get the best results.

In conclusion, microdermabrasion and chemical peels are good ways to get younger-looking skin. While they are similar in some ways, they are also different in meaningful ways, making them better for different skin types and concerns. 

If you need help determining which treatment is best for you, talk to a licensed aesthetician or dermatologist like our staff at Kendall Esthetics. They can look at your skin and tell you the best treatment. You can get the skin of your dreams with the right treatment plan and aftercare.

Best Candidates 

Even though microdermabrasion and chemical peels are effective treatments, they might only work for some. For example, if you have rosacea or eczema, you should talk to a dermatologist before getting any treatment. Also, suppose you’re pregnant or nursing. In that case, you shouldn’t get either treatment because the chemicals used in chemical peels can hurt your baby.
